Realistic; well-acted; a worthy film
4 October 2020 | by FlickeraterSee all my reviews

A sobering view of the disaster, and a reminder of what happened to the people there and what they did. Well-produced throughout, and with good acting from all. There is a little family drama but it is not overdone and fits the situation. It's very interesting to see the Japanese culture and approach to the events.
